We are very happy with our school and many of the great role models in our school today. No one is perfect. We all should be learning each day, learning to help each other, students, parents and teachers.

the rector school is very good with sports. it is lacking in teachers helping. my child says that the teachers text all the time. my kid is old enough to know if teachers are teaching them correctly and she usually tells me that the teachers dont finish the lesson or they dont have a lesson at all and when my kid gets a bad grade the teacher tells the class that they better not have a call from their parents telling them that there kid wasnt fully taught. but other than that they have a great gt program.

My family has been blessed to be part of a community with a very good school. Our children are getting a good education. The teachers and administrators have shown that they care about their students. Every year we pray that God will give us good teachers and He has answered that prayer each time.

Parental involvement is lacking. Teachers seem offended when you need to talk to them about your childrens progress.

In my opinion the curriclum leaves something to be desired. the focus is on behavior , not grades or education. I recieved a letter from school outlining the teacher's responsibility , the students and also the parents responsibility. Students- be on time, bring a pencil; Teachers- hand out assignments; Parents- make sure child attends, on time, has materials, learns their lessons, help with assignments if needed.
